Footcandle Films

Hosted ByChris Frye & Alan Jackson

Do you like listening to people talk about films?  What about those films that may not show up at the local multiplex but are instead showing at the smaller specialty theater across town?  Then "Footcandle Films" may be the show for you.

Petite On the Count of Three Maman

Getting back to our independent film roots a bit we review Celine Sciamma’s latest PETITE MAMAN and then discuss comedian Jerrod Carmichael’s directorial debut ON THE COUNT OF THREE. In our movie news segment, we ponder whether a Spinal Tap sequel forty years after the first film is worrisome and the casting news from the sci-fi realm of DUNE. Closing out the show we offer some recommendations of films (or in Chris’ case a comedy special) that you might want to check out.

Recommendations from our hosts in this episode: “Dave”, “Jerrod Carmichael: Rothaniel”

Alan Jackson is the co-founder of the Footcandle Film Society and resides in Hickory, NC. He enjoys a wide variety of films – but mainly those of Martin Scorsese, his all-time favorite Director. Despite liking smaller, independent films, Alan also likes films with giant monsters or where animals talk. Alan also thinks Citizen Kane deserves every bit of credit it ever gets.

Chris Frye, the other co-founder of Footcandle Film Society, is a fan of directors such as Stanley Kubrick, Terry Gilliam, and David Gordon Green. He lives in Newton, NC, and has always been a movie buff. His favorite actors range from Steve Coogan to Christoph Waltz to Jeff Bridges. You may be surprised to know he has never seen Dirty Dancing or Pretty in Pink (gasp!)
